A great deal of current research in differential geometry has to do with what mathematicians call singularities. These range from corners which arise in optimal networks to black holes in general relativity. This talk will attempt to explain in a non-technical way what a singularity is how they arise in some examples. There will be lots of pictures and no formulas.
